Twin Falls Juveniles Being Investigated In Harrison School Arson
The Twin Falls Police Department responded to a fire on the grounds of Harrison Elementary School on October 7. It has been reported the fire was set by area juveniles that are currently under investigation.
At approximately 7 p.m. on Monday, October 7, Twin Falls police were contacted by witnesses to a fire that had been started at Harrison Elementary School in Twin Falls. A witness recorded the incident and shared it on social media. The police department already has access to the video, so we are not providing it in this story, as we do not wish to interfere with the investigation.
A Twin Falls woman who wishes to remain anonymous shared the video to social media that shows five individuals at the scene when the fire starts. The witness claims they were near a dumpster on the grounds of the school as the fire was started. She also claimed multiple juveniles rode off on bikes after attention was directed to them.
I contacted Twin Falls Police Lieutenant Terance Thuesone who provided some additional information.
"Twin Falls police did respond to the matter, and are investigating several juveniles that have been identified, " said Lieutenant Thueson. "This is being investigated as a third-degree arson. Because of the investigation, we cannot release any information on the identities."
